How to Look Wide Awake

How to Look Wide Awake

April 13, 2019

When feeling wide awake is not always an option (hello, third cup of coffee!), there are a few quick and easy tips that you can add into your morning routine to look a little more bright-eyed and well-rested.

 

Face Roller

Depuff your face with a rose quartz or jade face roller. You can even keep it in the fridge and pull it out when you need it for an extra soothing, quick morning pick-me-up. All you have to do is roll the cold stones over your face to help reduce water retention in the face. It works especially well on puffy under eyes and the jawline area.

 

Eye cream

If your feeling tired, your skin might be tired as well. When you have dry under eyes, you may look even more tired than you really are. Applying a little eye cream under your eyes will keep them looking hydrated all day long. A lot of high-quality eye creams can get pretty expensive, but you can make your own soothing and nourishing eye cream very simply.

 

DIY Eye Cream Recipe

  • ¼ cup shea butter
  • 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
  • 3-5 drops geranium essential oil

First, melt the shea butter and grapeseed oil together. Let it cool slightly for about 5 minutes. The, add in aloe vera and jojoba oil and combine with a whisk or hand mixer until smooth. Add in essential oil and mix again. Apply this cream twice a day, at morning and night.

 

Curl Your Eyelashes

Once your skin is de-puffed and your under eyes are hydrated, a great way to look more wide awake is simply by curling your eyelashes. This is a quick step to add to your routine that really opens up the eyes. Adding a black mascara will also help your eyes look bright and open.
